Updating a computer (Windows XP Professional SP 3), one of my relatives got as present, I changed the user name of the administrator in the administrator account, the old name being the surname of the previous possessor. But I could not change the corresponding name in the folder documents and settings (All Users, Default User, Harry, Local Service, Network Service), namely Harry. This being not very important but just a nuisance I notwithstanding got interested in the problem, but could not find any information searching the Microsoft websites. But perhaps is there somebody who had a solution?

A New Bible Built with Modern Technology

New Testament - Breakthrough Version

www.breakthroughversion.com

The Breakthrough Version achieves a much higher level of accuracy. It is:

  • more literal
  • more precise
  • more contemporary
  • more correct
  • more consistent

This Bible even translates hundreds of forgotten Greek words that no other Bible does.

It is an essential tool for Bible teachers and students, yet it is easy to read, even for newbies.

Here's how to change the registered owner. That sounds like what you are looking for.

Thanks for the information, but changing the registered owner was not my problem. I wanted to change the name of the folder Harry (only an example) as written in my original question.
